Oh, Karadashians. You either love them or hate them. Some of us (me) just live for the Kardashian drama: who they’re with, who’s cheating on who, which Kardashian makes more money, which one has more Instagram followers.
Yes, it is petty, but we love it anyway. So for those people like me, here’s a weird one.
Robert Kardashian is flirting with Natti Natasha on Twitter.
We know Rob has a thing for Latinas (cough…Adrienne Bailon…cough) and for celebrities. He’s dated a slew of them from Rita Ora and even a little something, something with Rihanna. After his disastrous relationship with Blac Chyna (all aired on reality TV), people are warning the Dominican singer to avoid Rob at all costs. Well, some of them anyway.
Here’s how some people are reacting to the possibility of the only male Kardashian and Dominican singer-songwriter.
Natti’s been previously linked to Don Omar, so we think Rob could fit that tall, dark, and handsome vibe.
If that’s the way Rob wants to roll.
Will Natti take the bait? This could help her career launch into the mainstream. It’s all about the crossover, right?
Why can’t he just slip into her DMs like a normal person?
Maybe Rob is looking for another reality TV show with a new leading lady. Rob, there is a proper way to hit a girl up. Public Twitter is not one of them.
On second thought, we kind of approve of this relationship.
With the Kardashian DNA and Natti’s incredible talent, Kris Jenner should move fast on this one.
On the third thought.
Yeah, this could only end really bad.
One person’s random is another person’s treasure.
This is Hollywood gold.
Can you blame him?
Okay, Kris, it’s all on you now.
Make this happen!

Who are we kidding: one of the major reasons all of us check our horoscope is to find out what the future has in store for us when it comes to love and lust. After all, you know that if you’re really meant to be together, then it’ll be written in the stars.
So Virgo, in honor of your birthday, we’ve put together a quick guide to point you in the direction of your soulmate.
Virgo with an Aries (March 21 – April 19) creates an explosively fiery passion.
Part of what attracts you to Aries is the fact that they do everything with so much passion. You can’t help but be attracted to the fire in their soul. But Virgo, you can only function on their level for so long until you burn out. For you, a relationship with Aries takes work.
Virgo with a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) is a matchmaker’s pick!
Taurus are known for being super grounded and down to earth, and that’s exactly the kind of person you need in your life, Virgo. Your drive for perfectionism means that your Taurus can put things into perspective for you – they’re the yin to your yang, so to speak.
Virgo with a Gemini (May 21 – June 20) sees opposites attract.
If one of your brutally honest friends had to describe you, Virgo, they’d say you’re a bit of a square. And, they wouldn’t exactly be wrong. That’s why Gemini can get on your nerves a bit … they’ve always got their heads up in the clouds when you’re trying to be realistic!
Virgo with a Cancer (June 21 – July 22) means both love and lust.
While on the surface it would seem like Cancer is a bit too emotional for you, Virgo, it turns out that they’re exactly the sort of person you need in your life – and they need you, too. Your pragmatism in the face of their emotional swings is what keeps them sane. And they remind you to stay in touch with your softer side. So you know what this means? You guys have fabulous, fulfilling sex. Noice.
Virgo with a Leo (July 23 – August 22) is one hell of a rollercoaster!
Leo can definitely test your patience, Virgo. You’re a quiet achiever, whereas Leo likes to get all of the attention, wherever they can get it. Leo’s got a massive ego that needs stroking … and you’re more critical. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much the perfect environment for lots of silly bickering. Then again, every couple has those moments, right?
Virgo with a Virgo (August 23 – September 22) asks the question: can you ever have too much of a good thing?
You’d think that being with someone who functions on the same vibe as you would be a match made in heaven. But, that’s only true to a certain extent. Given that the two of you are perfectionists and workaholics, you’d make a great power couple … that has almost zero romantic and sexual chemistry. If you want it to work, you’ve gotta work at it, Virgo.
Virgo with a Libra (September 23 – October 22) meshes realism with idealism.
When people think Libra, they think social butterfly. When people think Virgo, they think shy. Virgo, you’re a realist, whereas Libras are an idealist. They say that opposites attract, but in your case, you’d probably find that the differences between you and Libra would eventually drag you away from each other. The both of you would really have to put in an effort to find your way back.
Virgo with a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) sees things heat up in the bedroom.
While Scorpio and Virgo can build a really secure and safe relationship, you kids can come unstuck when it comes to your attitudes towards the bedroom. Scorpio tends to be all about the real carnal side of the beast with two backs, whereas Virgo is more about connecting emotionally through sex.
Virgo with a Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) mixes fun and stability.
It’s nice when you meet someone who’s as adaptable as you are. But in the case of Sagittarius, Virgo, you might find that they’re a little too spontaneous for your liking. That being said, they might get you to loosen up a little, which is never a bad thing in your case!
Virgo with a Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) is a match made in heaven!
Capricorn’s brand of perfectionism fits pretty well with your brand of perfectionism, Virgo. The difference is that you strive for better because you want to do good, whereas Capricorn wants to be good – at everything they do. And that makes you good together!
Virgo with an Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) is a hella smart match.
Because both you and Aquarius are intellectual sorts, you’d find that you’d have what Alanis Morissette called, “intellectual intercourse.” But since the pair of you have such different approaches to life, you’d probably find it a lot easier to work on a friendship together, rather than a real steamy, romantic relationship.
Virgo with a Pisces (February 19 – March 20) means sweetness in spades.
There’s no denying it, there’s definitely an attraction between you two. You’re both devoted, thoughtful and detail-oriented souls – but where Pisces is a dreamer, you’re much more realistic. If you’re both able to navigate your differences, then there’s no stopping you! Chances are, though, you’d find that your relationship will always be an ongoing project.

It’s nothing new that the Kardashian’s love to appropriate Black culture.
From hairstyles to fashion choices, white women have always benefited from ripping off black culture and while they keep getting called out — maybe even canceled — it still doesn’t stop anyone who isn’t non-black to keep on appropriating. From Kary Perry rocking her “baby hairs” dubbing it a “new trend,” to Kylie Jenner wearing her hair in dreadlocks then in cornrows, to Miley Cyrus also wearing dreadlocks, and to magazine’s giving white women afro tutorials, the list of misses are endless.
And the Kardashian-Jenner clan is no stranger to being called out for cultural appropriation. Every other week or month or so, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters make headlines for yet again another case of cultural appropriation. The latest? Kendall Jenner was spotted wearing cornrow braids (again) and people weren’t happy about it.
According to PEOPLE magazine, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and model was photographed wearing cornrow braids on August 23 in Los Angeles.
“She was also seen wearing the style, traditionally tied to black culture, in several Instagram Stories that next day, shared both to her page and sister Kylie Jenner’s page,” reports PEOPLE.
This isn’t the first time Kendall Jenner has made headlines when it comes to making problematic and questionable choices. Remember that Pepsi commercial?
People on social media have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts about Jenner wearing braids.
A Twitter user said she was exhausted of white people, women specifically, constantly appropriating black culture and wearing hairstyles “that we are always ridiculed/chastised for having and just doing it because they want to ‘look different’ or ‘stand out.'” User @tinaallamm went on to say that black women wear these types of hairstyles to “PROTECT our natural hair from damages” meanwhile white women simply wear them to look cool and aren’t scrutinized in the same ways.
Another Twitter user said the Kardashian family just “loves to use black culture to their benefit it’s disgusting.”
The Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s family has constantly been criticized for thriving off of black culture and rarely giving credit where credit is due.
PEOPLE reached out to Jenner’s rep but they did not immediately respond to the publication’s request for comment. As aforementioned, this also isn’t the first time the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have faced backlash after wearing cornrows or other protective hairstyles for black women.
Last year, Kim Kardashian West was under fire for wearing cornrow braids, referred by the Kardashian-West sister as “boxer braids,” at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.
However, this wasn’t the first or the last time she would be caught rocking cornrow braids. She then dyed her hair/braids blonde and posted numerous Instagram Stories flaunting the hairstyle even amid the social media backlash. First, she made it clear she didn’t care about the negative feedback but as always, Kim caved and somewhat apologized.
“I’ve definitely had my fair share of backlash when I’ve worn braids,” the KUWTK star said at BeautyCon in Los Angeles last year. “I’ve been fortunate to be able to travel around the world and see so many different cultures that have so many different beauty trends.”
Back in 2016, the “self-made billionaire” Kylie Jenner also took to Instagram to show off her cornrow braids and once she even wore her hair in dreadlocks.

After donning the hairstyle, actor Amandla Stenberg made sure to comment on her photo and make her opinion known. Stenberg commented on Kylie’s photo back in 2015-16 that “when you appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards your wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdobetter.”
While it seems as though Kylie Jenner never addressed the backlash then, she’s perhaps learned from that mistake since she hasn’t been seen wearing that hairstyle again. But the same cannot be said for her sisters.
Ultimately, it’s important for women as powerful and influential as the Kardashian-Jenner clan to learn from their mistakes and address the backlash head-on. It’s irresponsible and hurtful to the black community to go around parading themselves in hairstyles inclusive to black women. Culture isn’t something you can put on and then take off whenever it feels convenient to you, and this family has the privilege of being able to pick and choose when they can try on someone else’s culture.
